'THUS' Lyrics

The Angel
My eyes are closed, my face is white
Thought that this might be the end
But I'm only half way through the lie
Cause there's still more truth to bend
Backwards to fit my needs
It's left up to me again
If I am s'posed to make things right
I'll have to make more than I spend

Cause if I fell today there won't be a tomorrow to begin again
A loving embrace
A smile on their face
And a prayer as I am on my way

Inside these lies I'm dressed up in
Crying eyes confess the sin
All the truth I had my faith in
It's turned me in

But I know one thing...
Angels may fly, devils may burn
But I just sit alone and wait my return
Look to the sky asking you why
Must I remain inside, locked away

Much smarter than you all realize
An introvert externalized

Go Away
Apologies won't say that I'm sorry
On my knees from the weight of this worry
I said I'm sorry and I hope
It's in your heart to let this go
If it is please let me know
And if it's not I'll go

(On and on I'll go)
This day

Now it's up to me to find my way home
Where it is tomorrow I may not know
Committing crimes and I can only hope 
That you've got the heart to spare death tolls
Enisled at sea, no longer in tow
And I know that I must go

(On and on I'll go)
Who am I
 to leave behind the mess I left?
You are the same
You have not changed...

The Stone
Pretty soon you won't have a team to take one for
It isn't my place to tell you, but I'm gonna tell you
That the world was turning long before you got here
I speculate it'll keep going when we die

You need something to beleive?
Just beleive in you.
That's what you're fighting for
Do you need anyhting more?

You're all self inflicted and that's a victim no one likes
Play like you're an underdog when all you know how to do is bite
Such a short time to live, there's no time to kill
Scraping to the top of an anthill

Short time to live, there's not timeto kill
throwing stones at the top of the anthill

Face down in a gutter
Well it's ok, cause I have my dreams
Got my own ideas and lies
Guess I don't mind if you tell me otherwise
Be my friend or my enemy Either way I'm pleased

You say 'do this', what I should try to be
But which one of us here is me?
I've got my ears and eyes
So I think that I'll get by

If you drown it out, you can make em see
You can show em how, you can make them beleive
Let your demon out, set em free
Just open the door and swallow the key

I've got this thing I ,like to call home
Seems to be wherever I go
Anywhere I want to end up
Just don't bother me about it

My throat hurts but come the pleasure or pain
Well, you know what they say
So no more hand me down  advice
Just go home and let me late my night

I'll lay it out, and make a scene
Cause I know what I'm doing  don't talk down to me
Go ahead, tell me I won't last
whil;e I light up the next one with my last

If I block them out, they'll let me be
But is it me or them that I'm setting free?

I wash my hands of this and throw my towel in
Though I wasn't the dirty rat if there was a first place to be in
I remember the hard times
cause they weren't fun times
nonetheless our times

But I just want to get it back
You lying sack

You're words don't weigh to much, but you got a lot to say
I never heard someone talk so much with so little to say
Both my feet on the ground,
you wait for the
other shoe to drop

But I just want to get it back
You know what I'm talking about
You should just turn back
Don't you know you're out?

I thank you execution style
Now take your exit and we'll call it a day
Keep your distance from me

I don't want to get it back
You can just take it back
But I hope that you know you're out
And I dare you to try to come back

Real Trouble
Try to think of what to say, as I turn myself away form this trouble
How much I gotta pay to get myself away from this trouble?
Cause I didn't want you to find out this way.

We're in trouble
really big trouble

It was only yesterday, and I felt so far away from my troubles
And I had a place to stay and my home was not reduced to rubble
And I can't live like this forever

I'm in trouble
Really big trouble

I can't keep living like this,
it's to much for my health now
I can't keep living down here
life's feeling like a cel

I hear about a lot of people getting shot in this place
Where saving grace is saving face to get you through the days
Don't catch fire, everybody's flammable
Moods: kerosene. Actions: matches.
That's how the fire starts
Born like twins
Matchstick mess
(Mother nature gives birth to brother mature and sister even more
But they ain't around so, just enjoy the embers on me)

Gonna burn your hand a lot cause it's always hot in here
But you'll always put it back to keep your foot inside the door here
You'll never steer clear
I burned my hand, put it back again

I though you had, you told me time and time again
we got a good thing going
I didn't know, little did I know you really had me going
Now you're down on your knees
and nobody's there to help you so you're coming back
Coming to me?
Guess you've got no home to foster you cause I'm the last
You'd ever see
If home is where the heart is, then you must be homeless

And being here at long last at the end of the line
I'm seeing clearer in hindsight
What I told myself so long ago
Just without me knowing

You never really wanted me around
You never really wanted me there

Hold on, I need some more from you
Don't put your patience away, I'm gonna need some of yours
All of this complaining, I'm a laymen, I'm not a criminal

Come on you can do Just one more thing for me
Sorry but today I won't have your money
All of this complaining, I'm a laymen, I'm not a criminal
All of this complaining, we're the same and I'm looking out for you

So you don't need my money
to complete the deal we got going
Don't wake me don't stir me
don't want monetareality in me

All these broken promises, please don't take offense
Let's plan for today I've got some time to kill

Wings & Prayers
He dies, you cry and capitalize in the side
Robbing your friends’ wife
In to much pain to be thinking twice

Voices in the house and mystic numbers that you’re lying about
Where’s your head? Where you been?
For eighteen years you were out and about

And as the apple fell, so far from the tree, into a whole it fell
Swallowed down six feet

Gritting, those teeth ain’t too far below the surface of your smile
I claim you, morally, as my moral enemy

All these wings and prayers won’t get you anywhere
You won’t be seeing him again far as I can see

 Done giving credit to the credible
Done eating what's not edible
Done paying my oaths to those whom
I don't owe
Everything is not what it appears to be,
that's why appearances aren't everything
Might see it if you wake up, but you only rise and shine
When you see and opportunity
Something that puts you at ease
Maybe I could put you at ease,
with some kind of sympathy

You only rise and shine to the world when it's out to get you
This is why if you die, the same world will forget you
I have seen it so many times
That’s right I used to love it and be the same way

Feels like all debts are indelible
You’re conscientious but it’s still forgettable
The skin of your green back
You can shed it all

A little sympathy
Shed it all

They’re gonna take it away
Gotta get your head from the clouds
and the thought of the winter
Take flight as a winner
In the fight for your life
Or they’re gonna take it away
Times ticking and taking away as it’s tolling
Taking away the time
Ticking so fast but I’m
Deciphering the problem
Probably some sort of
